5 Nasty Women Who Are Doing This Resistance Thing Better Than Anyone Else

By Jillian Stacia

It’s been more than six months since Trump took office, and it seems like there is a new catastrophe every day. It’s hard to stay committed to resistance when it’s so much easier to stick your head in the sand – or in front of Netflix – and pretend like none of this is happening.

But as tempting as that may be, we owe it to each other to keep fighting. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of women are kicking ass at this resistance thing. Hopefully you’ll get some ideas, or at the very least some inspiration, to help you stay focused. Don’t give up hope, nasty women! We need you!

Lauren Duca

Lauren is an acclaimed journalist whose work has appeared in Teen Vogue, Vice, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan and The New Yorker. You might recognize her from her viral piece “Donald Trump is Gaslighting America,”or the time she went on the Tucker Carlson show and literally slayed. Her column, Thigh High Politics, breaks down what’s happening in the political realm into bite size, digestible content that doesn’t make you want to run away screaming.

Glennon Doyle

Glennon has transformed from blogger to best-selling author to badass political activist. Her posts on social media are filled with ways to get involved and rise up, along with a healthy dose of motivation and real talk. Her nonprofit, Together Rising, is an organization that is actively working to make the world a better place, something we can all agree is rather important right now.

Melissa McEwan

Melissa is a writer and editor-in-chief of the progressive blog, Shakesville.com. She was and is an unapologetic Hillary supporter who has since dedicated her platform to resisting the Trump administration. She uses her site to share relevant articles, advice and best practices for existing in this political shitstorm. Her daily column “We Resist” consist of news stories and daily action steps. Plus, she posts lots of pictures of her adorable pets – always an added bonus.

Jory Micah

Jory is a writer, advocate and preacher who combines the tenants of Christianity with feminism and overall acceptance. Despite pissing off religious conservatives on a daily basis, she remains very outspoken against Trump, and her social media profiles demonstrate her belief in acceptance for people of all backgrounds. She is an important voice for those looking to resist within a religious framework.

Hillary Clinton

I know, I know, this one was kinda obvious. But guys, Hillary lost the election to that buffoon. Can you even imagine the inner strength and willpower and fortitude it must take for her just to get out of bed in the morning? How is she still fighting? How is she resisting? How is she leading the charge? If that was me, I would be in bed eating ice-cream out of the carton while listening to Boyz II Men. If Hillary can do it, so can you.
